Watchdog Group says keep Pantex open

Watchdog groups want the US to cut down on its nuclear weapons production to only three sites, including the Pantex Plant.

The combined statement calls it a step toward a nuclear weapons-free world.

President Obama talked about that goal during his recent European trip.

The Watchdog groups say the US requires no more than 500 nuclear weapons.

They also stress the US should only use those nukes to deter an attack on our soil.
